Since living in Kent she has acquired Nelson, a one-eyed cat from the local charity Streetkatz, and is hoping to add a few more animals to her household soon.
Claire has a particular interest in surgery and outside of work enjoys walking, gardening and silversmithing. She has a rescue cat called Luna.
In 1998 Claire set up Goudhurst Vets and has worked here since then, handing over management to CVS in 2010. She loves all aspects of her work, particularly feline and equine medicine and surgery.
Claire has two children, three cats, two guinea pigs and four chickens.
She is originally from Eastbourne and so has spent most of her life in South East England and enjoys all that it has to offer. In her spare time she enjoys a range of sports, tending to the vegetables in the allotment and spending time with the family.
